Enjoyed this audio book. Storyline was interesting and great after it got going a bit. The characters were believable and likeable. Quirky.
The intriguing story and trying to figure out who the perpetrator is
How Tulip was protective of Charlie.
Not knowing who was doing the killing....
Truly thought the same person had a split personality and doing all the killing...
I would see the movie, but would probably wait until it came out on DVD:)
As mentioned in the headline, the story is entertaining and but not one of the best.
Suspenseful and fast paced. I figured out the ending about half way through the book, but still couldn't stop listening! The plot was intricately woven between the three main women, yet still easy to follow.
This was my first exposure to Lisa Gardner's work. I purchased it on the basis of its high ratings and the description of the plot. I like good mysteries, including good murder mysteries, but I do not like blood and gore. Nothing in the book's description prepared me for the explicit portrayal of the horrors of child abuse, pedophilia, and violence against children. These are topics I know about and know exist but derive no pleasure from reading about. Had I been forewarned, I would not have purchased it.
Secondly, the narrator did not much differentiate the voices of some of the characters, so I had trouble following who was speaking at times.
I love books!
This was my 5th Lisa Gardner book and I've enjoyed them all. I'm not sure how I heard of her, maybe just seeing here reviews here on audible. I don't frequent bookstores much anymore but when I have I do see her books on the bestseller lists so she must be doing pretty well. As good a writer as she is, I'm sure she is. The author comes up with some evil characters and this one was no different. Set in New England, centered in Boston, this story is a pyschologoical thriller that keeps you turning the pages. I got through this one pretty qucikly. If you've never tried Lisa Gardner, I highly recommend her.
Life is great!
Yes, I was kept on the edge of my seat! This story was in many ways unique, how can someone really think they know the day they will die when they've prepared for it in so many ways? Who and why could be killing off her friends and want her to be next? I kept thinking I knew, only to be let down by finding I hadn't figured it out. And really, knowing what you know or think you know how could there really be an unexpected ending after all?
This is the first time I've listened to a performance by Kirsten Potter and I really enjoyed it. She tricks your mind into thinking you are really hearing different people talk and think. It won't be my last, as I did enjoy it and tend to consider the narrator when I am choosing my next purchase.
I highly recommend this book to other mystery and suspense lovers out there!
It was pretty good and interesting. I thought the information about abuse was good. The story line held to its mystery.
Yes, because some behaviors were not characteristic.
Cat and mouse game, but you are not really sure who is who. Nice plot, excellent narrator, disturbing facts about pedofiles network.
